From classic rock to R&B, from country to bluegrass, from Motown to modern sounds, The Wrest, one of Richmond, Virginia’s premier cover bands, has been thrilling audiences for 17 years and extending the legacy of many favorite artists of days gone by. Putting an emphasis on vocals, the members of The Wrest believe their exceptional harmonies are what separates them from other cover bands. Combine that with their energetic stage performance, great instrumentation and passion for music, and the band has developed a strong following since 1997.
The Wrest is Pat O’Brien (guitar, vocals), Jane Cooper (vocals), Jim White (vocals), Krista Crandall (vocals), Tommy Hughes (Bass, Banjo, Guitar, Mandolin and vocals), Stuart Grimes (drums), Bruce Gober (keyboards, guitar, vocals) and Bob Wengert (sound).
Synonymous with the words “Party Band”, The Wrest is the perfect band for any event. In addition to local shows, The Wrest has played many weddings, corporate events, private functions and festivals throughout the Mid-Atlantic.
